Okay, downside is it's too small. But it's worth it. Real food from the earth with minimal processing and maximum care and taste. A little on the expensive side. You must visit this place at least once if not perhaps a couple of times. I...More

I love the food here. Be prepared to wait at lunch because everyone shows up. The Elephant Ear is my favorite but the Mexican corn is to die for.

Something totally worth trying is the corn on the cob, comes coated with a mixture that is off the chart good. Also tried the soft tacos, great flavor.

Oh wow, was not expecting that once i walked in. I had the shrimp sandwich and it was fantastic. The place is quite small and looks like a take away place. The only negative thing I can say about the place was that I wish...More
